Call For Proposal 2013 - Red Umbrella Fund

Posted by Shofi Fida Sunday, July 7, 2013 0 comments
Closing Date: August 1, 2013.

The Red Umbrella Fund is the first global fund guided by and for sex workers. We believe that change will only be achieved through strong, collaborative movements of sex workers advocating for their rights, with the support of their allies. Sex workers themselves are the best positioned to know what is needed for them, and best placed to do something about it. The Red Umbrella Fund exists to mobilise resources to help strengthen and sustain the movement in achieving human rights for sex workers.

Vision, mission, and strategic priorities:
Our vision is to see societies uphold and respect the health, human, and labour rights, as well as the self determination of sex workers of all genders.
Our mission is to strengthen and ensure the sustainability of the sex worker rights movement by catalysing new funding specifically for sex worker-led organizations and national, regional and global networks.
Our strategic priorities focus on promoting sex workers’ human rights, building sex workers’ capacities (especially through peer capacity building), and strengthening and sustaining the sex workers’ rights movement.

The Red Umbrella Fund provides funding to sex worker-led organisations and networks that are:
1.  based in any country in the world;
2. registered or unregistered;
3. led by women, men and/or trans.

In 2013, the Red Umbrella Fund prioritizes groups, organisations and networks that:
1. Most strongly contribute to the Red Umbrella Fund’s vision, mission, and strategic priorities.
2. Have an inclusive approach towards more vulnerable or excluded groups within the sex workers’ movement (this may include for example migrant sex worker, trans sex workers, sex workers living with HIV, etc.);
3. Are committed to democratic principles and shared leadership;
4. Have annual budgets below 200.000 euros.

For the 2013 Call for Applications, the Red Umbrella Fund has a total budget available of 500.000 EURO with which we expect to make about 25 grants in total.
